Missing Teen Boy Found Alive After Hike In Southern Utah

Authorities in Utah have found a missing teenager alive on Saturday after he spent the night in freezing temperatures in a remote hiking area north of St. George. The Spectrum reported that the Washington County sheriff’s office said 15-year-old Britton Kelsey was treated for symptoms of hypothermia after he was found near the Red Mountain Trail. Family members first reported Kelsey missing on Friday around 3 p.m. after he became separated from two hiking groups. Deputies sent two helicopters to search for the teenager on Friday. Efforts were called off and resumed on Saturday where a trail of shoeprints led authorities to the teen.
